Doug Jones - Bending Toward Justice

Friday, August 27, 2021 - 5:00 PM

Senator Doug Jones' account of the investigation, trial, and conviction of the two surviving perpetrators of the infamous bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in 1963 is one of the most important books ever published on the subject. Jones, who as US Attorney was responsible for prosecuting the two former Klansmen, fills the retelling with compelling details from his unique perspective on the case.
DOUG JONES is the former junior senator from Alabama. In 2017, he became the first Democrat to win a Senate election in Alabama since 1992. As U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama from 1997 to 2001, Jones prosecuted two former Ku Klux Klan members for their roles in the racially-motivated 1963 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing that took the lives of four girls. He also secured an indictment against Centennial Olympic Park bomber Eric Rudolph.

The event is free and open to the public.
